Abstract

As cultural sector practice becomes increasingly dependent on digital technologies for the production, display, and dissemination of art and material heritage, it is important that those working in the sector understand the basic scientific principles underpinning these technologies and the social, political and economic implications of exploiting them. The understanding of issues in cultural heritage preservation and digital heritage begins in the education of the future stakeholders and the innovative integration of technologies into the curriculum. This paper gives an example of digital technology skills embedded into a module in the interdisciplinary UCL Bachelor of Arts and Sciences, named “Technologies in Arts and Cultural Heritage”, at University College London.

Acknowledgments

Many thanks go out to the wonderful Bachelor of Arts and Sciences team of UCL’s Faculty of the Arts and Humanities, especially to Carl Gombrich, Amanda Cater and Cristy Meadows, who made this module possible and provided their invaluable support throughout the years. Additional support, through provision of space and equipment loans, was kindly provided by the UCL Institute of Making, UCL Institute for Sustainable Heritage, UCL Centre for Digital Humanities and the 3DIMPact research group at UCL’s Department of Civil, Environmental and Geomatic Engineering. Parts of the module reuse materials one of us co-developed with Szymon Rusinkiewicz for a Freshman Seminar at Princeton University, USA.
